XSEED is a proven and research based academic program for schools that builds thinking skills & problem solving confidence in children. XSEED children ask more questions, can write in their own words, like doing word problems in mathematics, can complete their homework on their own, are not afraid to speak-up in English, persist longer in solving problems, and score well on tests.
XSEED teachers begin a class by clearly stating the learning goal, ask children what they know already, demonstrate an experiment or conduct a group activity, let children speak before they do, ensure the “application questions” are done independently, fiercely believe in practice, assess daily, and support each child individually.
Clarify the outcome of every lesson so students know beforehand what they will learn.
Perform an activity to experience concepts first-hand & understand their use and application in real life.
Reflect on the experience & ask probing questions to uncover and understand the concept further.
Practice solving real world problems in the workbook to solidify understanding and build skills.
Get real-time feedback across conceptual understanding, applied thinking & english language fluency in order to improve performance.
In XSEED schools teachers are better resourced and regularly trained, children have application practice workbooks for every subject in addition to textbook, assessment is on skills in addition to concepts, and the school leadership has a highly skilled education coach to consult with.
